Premature ejaculation is characterized by an individual’s in ability to hold his erection long enough. An individual is also said to suffer from the condition if he tends to ejaculate within 2 minutes of starting vaginal sex.
Premature ejaculation can be quite an embarrassing problem to deal with. If left untreated, recurrent episodes of premature ejaculation can also cause several physical and psychological issues in an individual’s life. So if you are looking out for possible solutions to this ‘really personal problem’, here are some effective solutions for the same.
Tips on How to Prevent Premature Ejaculation
Use Numbing Creams
Apply some numbing cream onto the penis before starting vaginal sex. The cream would reduce the sensation (and sensitivity) in the area and help you prolong your ejaculation. Your partner may feel a slight loss of sensation due to the cream as well.
Choose varieties that claim to reduce stimulation and prolong ejaculation. You can also opt for condoms that contain a slight coating of numbing gel (or) cream on the insides which would effectively help you control your erection and delay ejaculation.
It would take a good 20 minutes for a man to orgasm again after ejaculating once (it takes longer than that for certain men). So try masturbating at least ½ hour before indulging in sex. This way, you can delay ejaculation and enjoy sex wholesomely.
Opt for Slow Intercourse
Hurried, frantic or pressurized sex can cause premature ejaculation in certain cases. So try opting for slow sex wherein you relax your body and mind before intercourse.
Breathe deeply, clear your mind (don’t think about climaxing), reduce your anxiety and include more foreplay into your sex routine so that it becomes more pleasurable for both you and your partner, a factor that would help you control your orgasm effectively.
Change Sex Positions
Certain sex positions (like ‘man on top’ and ‘rear entry’) can place more pressure on the penis (especially the glans) and cause premature ejaculation. So opt for alternate positions that would help delay ejaculation to an extent. Some of these so called ‘passive positions’ include the ‘spooning’ (side by side) and the ‘woman on top’ etc. These positions would cause place less friction and pressure on the glans, thereby preventing premature ejaculation.
Try the Edging Method
A few trial runs would enable you to master the edging technique to prevent premature ejaculation. The basic technique involves squeezing the penis (near the glans) with your thumb and forefinger as and when you are about to have an erection.
Stop any kind of sexual stimulation for about 30 seconds or so and remain motionless throughout this period, making sure you don’t let go of your penis. After this time period, resume intercourse and repeat the procedure when you feel like ejaculating again. Repeat this for about 3-4 times until you are ready to ejaculate. With time, your body would get accustomed to delayed ejaculation and work accordingly.
Exercise your PC muscles
Kegel exercises are considered as the best options when it comes to preventing premature ejaculation.
These exercises enable you to work on your pubococcygeus muscles (PC) and strengthen the same in order to prolong erection and prevent premature ejaculation. Regular exercises can help you control your orgasm to a great extent during intercourse.
Call a Doctor
If none of these steps seem to help you, check with a doctor for alternate options. In addition to offering suitable alternatives, the doctor would be able to determine whether the condition is caused by an underlying, more serious ailment that needs to be treated in order to prevent the former.
